Recommended place to stay:

Last updated: 31 October, 2022

One of the best bargains in a city notorious for expensive hotel rates and gloomy, cramped rooms.

Rooms here are tiny – hence the name ‘Pod’ – but fun, sunlit, efficient, comfortable, incredible value – and with an ingenious jigsaw of furniture that somehow gives you everything you need. Funky public spaces with fabulous art make this a surprisingly pleasant little bolt-hole.

Best of all is its location. Slap bang in the centre of Midtown, it’s close to New York’s cultural highlights – Museum Mile, Central Park, Broadway and the major performing arts venues.

Great for a first visit and sightseeing, when all you really need is a cosy place to bed down for the night.

Surrounding area

The Pod’s proximity to the United Nations headquarters and location in a mainly residential area means the streets around the hotel are unexciting – which partly explains the bargain price.

However, they are functional, having lots of serviceable cafés and bistros, and are not unpleasant, just quiet and safe. Good Subway links nearby, plus the East River, Central Park, Fifth Avenue shopping, Rockefeller Centre.


Please note - we hope to one day have live prices for you, but for now, here are some useful links for you to compare prices...
